These wood creations are a taste of things to come from the Lethbridge, Alberta master craftsman Daryll Duus, a title given not from his own words but rather from his own work. He has created an array of fine works of art such as a symphony orchestra quality violin, ukeleles, book shelves, chess sets, a small sailboat, a kayak, various boxes for various uses, hand planes, our own bistro table and chairs made from cherry wood and black walnut, an armoir, bedroom dressers and bed frame, and the list goes on and on.
I don’t think there is anything that Daryll couldn’t make out of wood except maybe a NASA space shuttle but even then I wouldn’t count him out! A Renaissance man of sorts, Daryll is also mostly a self taught musician with his own Blues Band, an avid and knowledgeable gardener with specialty’s in many different types of tomatoes and peppers, and generally a great guy to have in your back pocket should you ever get lost in the woods; he could tell you which worms, roots and bugs to eat to stay alive! For more on Daryll and his woodwork please take a look at our interview with him.
